  • i have been having trouble with this one too, i have been using the cry it out method. they're old enough to sleep on their own at this point, mine is three and i don't feel bad about the crying bc it's the whining not the OMG i'm sooo upset crying. moms know what i mean. hopefully it works out for me. good luck to you

  • My 17 mo still uses her crib. We also use CIO when she doesn't want to go to bed. It is mostly whining and not crying. I wish you luck and they are old enough to sleep on their own. Just keep at it and they will be using their own beds by the time the new one gets here.
